First shots with new regal

Postby Dirtbikerick » 22 Feb 2017, 06:26

Well I got my new regal .22 last Friday and with all the storms we have had here on the central coast all I could do was install and level the scope and eyeball this beautiful gun. So today I got off work and had I chance to shoot it. After about 2 clips got it zeroed and started sub dime size groups at 30 yards. What a great gun! The trigger is a little too touchy compared to my synrod or hw97 but I don't think I will touch it for right now. Can't wait to shoot it some more, so happy I bought it!

Very nice! You will find it a wonderful gun. I can't say I can do it "all day long", but mine will produce 1/2" 5-shot groups at 50 yds. As for the trigger - I thought the exact same thing when I first got mine, but now I do not think it is too light at all. Either it has changed and I need to lube it, or I have just gotten used to it.

I have not chronoed any shot strings yet so very interested in what that will be like, I also called the vendor I purchased it from to get info on the bolt handle adjustment, I find that when cocking my hand had little clearance from the scope, he said loosen the grub screws and warm up the handle to loosen the lock tight and adjust as needed. Also at what yards do you guys set your 1st and 2nd zero?, thanks

You would need to tell us:
- Rifle power
- Distance between scope axis and barrel axis
- Pellets used
Basically, with a ~12fpe gun using domed pellets, a 15 meter 1st zero would be a good starting point (IIRC, mine is .177)

Thanks Bruno, the gun is a .22 and 30 fpe, pellets are 14.35 jsb. Am I understanding you that you need to know distance between scope and barrel centerlines? I just zeroed it at 30 yards but at 50 yards it's shooting about 3" low. I was thinking I need to set 1st zero at closer to 20 yards. Thanks

I have the 30 ft-lb 22 also. I'm sure it is running around 28 ft-lbs, although I have not chrono'd it. My scope is 1-5/8" over the bore. I zero at 35 yds, which puts it about 1-1/2" low at 50 yds. I'm shooting the 13.4 gr. JSB's. I'm not exactly sure where the inside zero is, but somewhere around 15-20 yds I think.

So I got back out to shoot the regal and started having cocking issues, it would discharge when cocking. My trigger is very sensitive so I adjusted the 2nd stage and problem solved, boy does a little bit go along way on that adjuster. Was able to put 160 rounds thru it. Numbers wise I'm getting 40 shots with cphp high shot 916 and low 898. Also I was wrong about shooting 3.5" low at 50 yards, it's shooting 2" low at 50 with zero at 30 yards. It is more sensitive to movements than my .25 synrod I'm guessing due to the weight factor. What a fine machine though.
